Meridian: Of the center, core; in traditional Chinese medicine, the meridians are the paths through which life-force or qi travels through the body.
Are you ready to release the stories at your core? Meridian Writers is seeking writers who prefer a fun, generous and supportive atmosphere in which to write together and celebrate one another’s creative efforts.
Using the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method, we write together in response to exercises designed to spark your creative imagination. All genres and all experience levels are welcome — give yourself the structure you need to let your writing flow. Writers at this workshop create work in many different genres: fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, memoir, science fiction, and more. Whether you are working on a longer project or ready to let a new voice emerge, you are invited to join this community of writers who are connecting more deeply with their writing practice.
Every week, we have time for at least three writing sessions; during breaks, there is time to connect with one another and discuss writing-related topics. Coffee and/or tea will be provided, as well as light snacks (sometimes even including homemade bread).
At the end of our nine weeks together, you will have a strong new creative community, and a beautiful body of new writing.
This group meets in Oakland near several BART stations (space is not wheelchair accessible). Spaces are limited to 9 writers per workshop session.
Fee for our regular 9 week workshop is $425. Fees from this workshop help support Writing Ourselves Whole’s workshops for trauma survivors.
